Perhaps you're right about that. I appreciate the sincere responses to my question. Unfortunately, no one who responded appears to have read it. It might be too basic for any cutting edge mathematician (or bleeding edge crank) to take seriously.
Although, the way I understood his argument, he was asking for a unification of "basic" math and "fundamental" math, so any elementary school student could learn the fundamentals while learning the basics. But, that may only be a question for people who want to increase the quality of math for the general population. Of a certainty, that is a question for another thread.
